Your year-end gift helps feed the hungry, shelter the homeless
Being part of a community that welcomes all residents to share in the warmth and opportunity we each deserve is a big part of why my wife and I chose to move to Reston almost 40 years ago. As a supporter of Reston Interfaith (now Cornerstones) I suspect that sense of community is also part of what enriches your life your neighborhood.
This has been a very challenging year for the families we serve in and around your neighborhood. The impact of the continuing recession and government cutbacks for social safety net programs have increased the desperate situation many of our neighbors find themselves in. As a result, a growing number of families are seeking our assistance – for housing, food, and emergency support.
The Jackson family story I am sharing below is just one example. Won’t you help strengthen the fabric of our community this holiday season with a gift to help feed the hungry, shelter the homeless and put more of our most vulnerable neighbors on the path to self-sufficiency?
You have shown that you believe supporting neighbors in need is at the core of our communities’ civic and religious traditions. Your contribution today will affirm that commitment.
Thank you for being a Cornerstone for your community.
Stuart Rakoff, Chairman of the Board
